A walkers paradise set in 6 acres of woodlands and only 500 meters from the seafront.

Its coastal location on the outskirts of Ravenglass, a pretty Roman fishing village, makes our Ravenglass Club campsite ideal for exploring the coastal areas of the Lake District National Park. The campsite sits in six acres of mature woodland, once part of the Muncaster Estate, just 500 metres from the seafront.

This secluded and peaceful setting accommodates up to 75 caravans, motorhomes, trailer tents and tents. The hardstandings for caravans and motorhomes are spacious and there is a lovely tree-lined area for tenters. The campsite also offers three wooden camping pods, modern toilet and shower facilities and a large parent/child shower room. The village of Ravenglass with its three pubs is within walking distance of the campsite.

Coastal, woodland and fell walks can be enjoyed from site and the challenging Scafell Pike is a short drive away. There are also routes for cyclists and Hadrian’s Cycle Way starts just along the lane from the site at the Roman bathhouse.

Head to Ravenglass and take La’al Ratty, the famous Ravenglass to Eskdale Railway. The seven mile journey follows a stunning route through the Eskdale Valley. The mainline coastal train runs through Ravenglass taking in St Bees, Whitehaven and Maryport.

Ready Camp is available at this campsite. (Please note that, although we welcome dogs on this site, in the interest of all guests we do not permit pets to stay within the Ready Camp tents).

Our first time to Ravenglass and we loved it. Quiet woodland within easy walking distance to the village. Spotless facilities. Friendly site warden, lovely lady who retires this year. Wish more sites had such nice people.

This review is for Ravenglass

Ravenglass is a great base for the West side of the lake district, with good shelter from the winds that we had during our stay, facilities great usual standard from a club site, if you want a quiet break this is the place as there is very little at Ravenglass other than the immediate attractions, the little train is a must though, the journey from Ravenglass is stunning with scarfell at the other end and waterfalls to greet you, while we were there we also took the main line to Carlisle, which runs along the coast for approx 1/14hr before turning in land for Carlisle, it was still stunning on a slightly dull day, Carlisle usual city stuff with a few places of interest. At Ravenglass if you want to explore the usual lovely places of the lakes be prepared to travel, expect to take 1hr/35-50miles to get to popular places like windermere, and some of there A roads are quite narrow, but that's part of the tertiary, but the waterfalls and scenery are absolutely stunning, as it was our anniversary We did something special, we went for an evening sailing on Lake Windermere, four course meal, views stunning evening stars beautiful, the attention to detail great, for a special occasion well worth the money, (SailnDine)highly recommend that I did my first trip adviser review, another great holiday, cheers Mark and Chris xx

This review is for Ravenglass

Our first time to this site. Lovely spot really good dog walk outside the site 5 minute walk to the front which was more an estuary. Train ride to Eskdale is a must and so dog friendly. Beautiful walks at the other end and a very reasonably priced cafe. Would definately recommend the Ratty Arms for a meal, again very dog friendly and good food. Nice walk to Muncaster Castle tho we didnt go in as very expensive. Not sure if we would visit this site again, would probably go further east into the Lake District.

This review is for Ravenglass

On arrival at reception we were given a warm welcome by Tanya we had visited Ravenglass a few times previously we were directed to our pitch by Ron and later had a pleasant chat with him. We feel that however the pitches are very tired and need a complete recovery as due to the heavy rain pitches were dirty and even flooded with mud they are not large enough to fit an awning even a porch awning (we could not use ours as they have to be pegged on the grass ours would have been pegged close to the path to the toillets and other facilities. This site is always full to capacity club could spend our money by upgrading the pitches, Overall a great big thanks to the site managers Ron and Tanya and their assistants who all do a fantastic job under difficult circumstances.
